I have had the pleasure of working with McKinzie and Associates / CSI Mapping for many years. The staff is very professional, and their work is always above reproach.
I have purchased a considerable amount of forensic mapping equipment for use by law enforcement agencies throughout the Midwest. The selection and pricing of the equipment has always been very competitive. McKinzie and Associates / CSI Mapping provides outstanding customer support for the hardware and software to their customers. This becomes very important when dealing with customers who do not use the equipment on a daily basis.
I was trained in the use of forensic mapping by Steve McKinzie in the early 1990’s. I have been a customer since that time. McKinzie and Associates / CSI Mapping provides the best value for the dollar for equipment and training for their customers. McKinzie and Associates / CSI Mapping is dedicated to providing the best in equipment, training and investigations.

We have been doing business with McKinzie & Associates/CSI Mapping since its inception in 1999. At that time KHP was at the forefront of establishing a statewide forensic mapping program. Throughout the years we have continued to use the budget available to update our forensic mapping systems. As new technology emerges and is integrated CSI Mapping has provided excellent support and training.
Whether you are looking to start a forensic mapping program or update your current system, CSI Mapping has the experience to provide equipment, software, support and training for a cohesive program.
